OnePlus is all set to release a whole new line of smartphones, the Ace, in China’s largest market. There is also a high probability that OnePlus will also launch the device in India. However, there is a good chance that instead of launching an entirely new line, the new device will be sold in India as the OnePlus 10R, the “mid-level” variant of their flagship.
The new OnePlus Ace will be officially available to buyers in China from April 21. Sharp-eyed users who have been listening closely to OnePlus and the recent developments surrounding them claim that the new OnePlus Ace (or OnePlus 10R) is in fact a rebranded Realme GT Neo3.
The device is powered by the all-new MediaTek Dimensity 8100 and has up to 12 GB of RAM. As for storage, several leaks suggest that the base models of the phone will come with 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage and 6GB of RAM. All this is powered by a 4500 mAh battery, which will support a whopping 150W charger.
According to a leaked Geekbench test report, the phone achieved 962 single-core points and a 3,819 multi-core score.
As for the rear camera, it will be a triple shooter setup that will feature a 50MP primary camera with OIS, in addition to an 8MP ultrawide snapper and a 2MP macro camera. The corrugated surface under the camera housing gives it a unique look. Especially in the black color, the device looks good. Users also get the option to go for a silver colourway.
One worrying aspect of OnePlus’ upcoming device is the apparent lack of a notification slider. People who have been using OnePlus phones for a while love this nifty little feature. However, it is highly unlikely that the exclusion of an alert slider will be a deal breaker for most potential customers.
While OnePlus hasn’t revealed what the device will look like on the front, several leaks from earlier suggest OnePlus will offer users a 6.7-inch 120Hz FullHD+ AMOLED display with a center punch hole, which will house the 16MP front shooter.
The photos from the Chinese launch event of the OnePlus Ace suggest that the phone will be equipped with an IR sensor on the top. However, if the OnePlus Ace comes to India as the OnePlus 10R, there is a good chance that the sensor will fall.
